Monday 08th July 11am

The team had a sleep in this morning & were up at 7am. After breakfast they broke into two teams, team “Hoi” & team “Deniki” for some games & activities including, PNG idol, stretcher building, fire making & an international boxing match between PNG’s own Mary Joyce & Australia’s Mick O’Malley. Unfortunately for Australia Mick was knocked out with 5 seconds to go in the fight. After this it was a short hike this for 1.5 hours from Hoi to Kokoda, where the students and staff are now very happy having lunch & a few more games with the locals. Soon they will board the truck for the ride back to Popondetta. The students and staff will the enjoy a hot shower before getting ready for a “Pizza” night. A big well done to all the students and staff involved in the TEMIS Kokoda trek.
